Biggest Thrills of the Great Reno Balloon Race

Rebecca Wikler is a blogger and public relations and advertising professional in Reno. She’s sassy and silly and loves to learn. And of course she is a list addict. Read about what she does, check out her blog or follow her on twitter.


In Reno, special event season is the best time of the year. From May through September, there literally is not a weekend that goes by where there isn’t something special and unique to do. The Great Reno Balloon Race is by far my FAVORITE event of the year, because there’s really nothing like it. In true List Addict style, here are the things that top my list of what I love about the Balloon Race:

· Wearing pajamas in public and not being judged for it

· Getting cozy under a sleeping bag, waiting for the glow show and dawn patrol to start

· The fact that it’s completely free for everyone to enjoy, thanks to its many generous sponsors

· Knowing that basically the entire city is here, celebrating the same thing at the same time

· Seeing three generations of balloon race lovers enjoy the event together

· The chills I get when the national anthem is sung as the first balloon lifts off

· Champagne in the morning

· Funnel cake for breakfast (when else is that even appropriate?!)

· The awe seen in a child's face the first time they see a hot-air balloon (I can’t wait until my niece and nephew are old enough to come up from Las Vegas have their minds blown)

· The fact that if I get too close to the hot-air balloon, I might be asked to help

I'm from Reno, and I agree that this is an awesome event. My family has rolls and rolls of balloon pictures from when I was a kid, and ever single one has my favorite bunny balloon on it.

I'm flying to Reno in like 36 hours! I'm taking this as a good omen for my trip. :)
